TO THE END OF THE WORLD BY RECOMMENDATION I have a coworker that recently spent a vacation at The End of the World and just would talk about what a great time he and his wife had there. They took pictures and some videos and it sounded perfect So we decided let’s do it. The concierge made all of our reservations and connecting flight arrangements from Roatan to Guanaja. Easy and no stress! Prices were more than reasonable and the service excellent. I went fishing with Jordan several times using my new Ultra light set up. Landed many Bonefish, Tarpon and Permit all around the Resort. Flats, Beach and estuaries are all there and full of fish. Better than the Bahamas, Mexico and Belize. Didn’t see hardly anyone else fishing. My wife enjoyed scuba during the trip and just raved about the wall dives and the Shark diving, loved it! The Bar at the place was cool. We met the Mayor, Police Chief and his family, fishermen, other tourists from the other hotels and just Islanders stopping by. This is the place to be at if you want to actually experience Guanaja and the locals color. They all seem to end up at this TIKI bar set right on the beach. It’s an oasis that the locals really enjoy. Staff were enthusiastic and a lot of fun. Always helpful and friendly. We will definitely return.

IT REALLY IS LIKE ROBINSON CURSOE’S ISLAND! First time to Honduras and the Bay Islands. Looked at Utila and Roatan too but wanted to get away from the crowds. Guanaja definitely fit the description “Off the beaten Path” especially and unique is The End of the World. The owner Brian took the time to call and write us and answered all of our questions. By the time we arrived I already had a clear picture of what the place would be like and it was spot on. My Girlfriend and I sent a very relaxing Vacation at the bar and beach. We both tried out the Resort Dive experience since we are not certified divers. Excellent instruction and an amazing time. We did it two times. Internet was very good and worked in all the areas I tried it. Prices were inexpensive for high quality service and facilities. It’s not the Hyatt or Four seasons but as for a tropical beach destination we couldn’t be happier. Departing was like leaving dear friends that you can’t wait to come back and see soon.

BEST DIVING TRIP EVER! Our group of 6 divers travel to mostly Caribbean destinations seeking the best locations free from the cruise ship mentality and over used reefs. We have been to Roatan several times but the fact is the overwhelming popularity has destroyed the great diving reefs there. Filled to capacity cattle dive boats and shuttles dump thousands of people on the reefs. Nothing new not much adventure. We decided to check out Guanaja the island to the East. I tried to contact several hotels that cater to divers and only the End of the World responded promptly and offered to set up connecting flights and make a custom diving vacation to meet our expectations. Capt. Brian, son Jordan and the crew we the most professional accommodating we have encountered. We made at least two dives per day and a few night dives. Deep reefs, shallow reefs, wrecks, walls, ledges, beach dives, It’s all there and close to the hotel. Viz was very good to excellent. You will not see more varieties of fish and sea life in Roatan or anywhere else in the Caribbean. The shark dives were the best. We feed the sharks and took many photos and videos. We felt safe the entire time. Made two dives first time and requested to go back two more days which Capt. Brian was happy to do for us. Jado trader wreck was on the other side of the island and a further ride but to long. We stopped at a remote uninhabited island for the surface interval and did some exploring and snorkeling on the reef there. Made another dive at a medium depth wall/reef and went to the “KEY” or Cayo for lunch. Interesting. Everybody comes up to Brian to say hi and introduce themselves to us. It’s like he’s running for Mayor! All friendly islanders. The food was terrific. All we wanted was seafood and we had it all. Lobster, Crab, Shrimp, Conch and fresh fish caught and prepared daily. Fun Bar stocked to the hilt. The rooms were good sized, clean and the beds were firm. Sleep was comfortable and recharging. Tank fills were always 3000-3100. All appeared brand new and equipment was new condition and working great. The group all thoroughly enjoyed our diving and hotel experience and will all come back in March 2020.

EXCEPTIONAL VACATION: Hotel is in great shape. Peaceful, secure and manicured. Everything you can want or need is on the premises. Great TIKI bar, restaurant, Dive shop, fishing guide, right-on-the-beach, dock and miles of beach to walk and explore. The staff is accommodating and attentive interactive with the guests. Some places the workers don’t seem interested or they are not permitted to do so. Here, the owner encourages this and it makes a better experience for the guests. There is always some kind activities going on. Snorkeling trips and instruction, diving, fishing crab hunts, beach fires, Nature hikes and boat excursions. Hammocks are abundant and really comfortable. Rooms are clean and simple, completely comfortable and well ventilated. The water pressure is great! Meals were always fresh and tasty. We ate the best seafood cooked in a mud stove/oven. Locals flocked to this place to eat, drinks and enjoy the beach at the resort. This place is a fantastic place and something you would imagine from a South seas novel.

Great diving off the grid Most of the reviews of the resort seem to be from people who have not actually stayed here. We stayed at the End of the World for two weeks in September/October 2019. Here is our review of the time that we spent here. For reference, we are scuba divers and we have been to Bonaire 7 times, and have been to Roatan as well as a number of other locations and we have traveled extensively throughout the Carribean. The Diving: The scuba diving was simply fantastic. We saw one other dive boat once in the two weeks we were there, so we had the whole reef to ourselves. We mostly dove sites along the reef out in front of the resort. The reef is pretty amazing, and there are nice dive sites at 30 feet and sites at whatever depth you want to go to. The Pinnacle is close-by, and it makes for a nice dive that starts close to 100 feet and slowly winds its way up to the shallower reefs. There are well constructed buoys on all of the sites, so getting tied off is quick. The staff carries your gear to the boat in the morning. After breakfast, we would walk the 100 feet to the dock and get in the boat with our gear already assembled. 10 minutes later, we would be tied off and ready to dive. The water was amazingly warm, and we dove in t-shirts and shorts or a thin skin. Because nobody is there, the reef is in astounding condition. Roatan gets cruise ships and huge numbers of snorkelers and divers, so the reef is more abused. We dove with nurse sharks on at least half of our dives, and the explosion of fish was always spectacular. This is the easiest diving that we have ever done. No current, calm water and a staff that carries the gear make for stress-free diving. We would generally just throw our tank and BC off of the boat into the water and gear up in the water. The owner of the resort, Bryan, doubles as the dive guide. The boat is small, and would fit four divers and the guide comfortably. Mostly, it was just the three of us on these dives. We only wanted to do two dives per day, but I think that you can do more if you want to. Work it out with Bryan. During the two weeks we were there, we took one expedition to the other side of the island to dive near South West Cay (there is a wreck there) and we took a longer expedition out to Isla Barbareta. The Barbareta dives started pretty far off shore, so there was certainly an element of adventure diving into the open ocean. In the end, though, the diving off of the resort reef was consistently excellent and we didn’t see a need to have the guide go to such far-flung locations. There is a scuba shack which houses the compressor and the dive gear. All tanks are filled on-site. The compressor is hellishly loud, but they run it while you are out diving. There were a few occasions where it still had to run for a few minutes when we came back, but it was otherwise invisible to guests. We brought our own gear, but it was nice to know that additional equipment was available in case ours had a problem. There is also a nice snorkel spot with a quiet little beach within a 10 minute walk from the resort. Look for “Michael Rock Beach” on Google Maps. The Location: Guanaja is a small island and the resort is not near any of the small villages. It is off of the grid, so just realize this when you go there. The electrical power is reasonably reliable and a German engineer was there tweaking the solar grid, so it is probably even better now. There is Internet, but you won’t be streaming Netflix while you are there. The bandwidth is fine for email and general browsing. The resort is right on the ocean, and it is very quiet. Other than the occasional local walking past, or a few people tying up at the dock to sell fish or have a beer, you won’t see a lot of others. Getting to Guanaja is definitely a day-long process. We flew from Atlanta to Roatan and then took the puddle jumpers from Roatan to Guanaja via La Ceiba. The airport in Guanaja is tiny and, because there are no roads in Guanaja, we were picked up by boat at the airport and shuttled to the resort. It is only about a 15 minute scenic boat ride. There is only one short road in Guanaja, so boats, feet and dirt bikes are the way around. The staff boats into either Low Cay ( Bonacca) or Mangrove Bight a few times a week for supplies, so you can catch a ride with them if you want to walk around town. You can walk 40 minutes down the beach back to the resort from Mangrove Bight, but you will need to boat back with the staff from Low Cay. The Accommodations: This is a small resort. There are two guest houses up the hill, each with two separate rooms so, completely booked, four couples could be there. The owner and staff have houses down at beach-level. The scuba shack and restaurant/kitchen/bar are also at beach level. The rooms at the resort are spare, bordering on monastic. There are 95 steps from the beach up to the rooms so, if you have heart or joint problems, this is probably not the place for you to stay. There is running water in the rooms but no hot water, so be ready for cool showers. I say cool, not cold, because you are in the tropics. Nothing is ever that cold. Because the rooms are up off of the beach, there aren’t many biting insects up there and the rooms catch a nice breeze. The rooms have no air conditioning, but they have fans. This was generally not a problem because it cools off nicely at night. There are good quality screens on the windows, so flying things don’t come in to bother you. The staff brought fresh towels and sheets and straightened up the room while we were out diving. We did not wear shoes or sandals unless we were about to go into town. We lived in a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. The staff will do your laundry for a small fee, so don’t bring too much stuff. If you need air conditioning, fewer steps or a reason to wear that party dress, just pay twice as much and stay at Dunbar Rock and go out in their big dive boats with a gaggle of other divers. The Food: Just a reminder that you are at a small, modestly priced resort on a remote island - don’t expect big cruise ship buffet food. With that caveat - the food was consistently good and very fresh. The fruit smoothies are from fruit picked locally, the fish was caught this morning, the shrimp is not frozen, and so on. Marley, the cook, is really friendly and accomodating. If you have something in particular you want, and she can get the ingredients, she will make it for you. If you want more (or less), just let her know. Her seafood stew (soup?) was stunning. What you won’t be able to get is your favorite marmalade, your favorite cut of beef or any other bespoke foodstuffs. One look at the local stores and you will see why. If you have something special that you can’t live without, bring it with you. One building houses the Tiki Bar, the dining room and the kitchen. The bar was generally very quiet. The occasional small group of locals would be there, but it was mostly just the guests. The beer ($2) and drinks ($5) are reasonably priced. They try hard to keep well stocked and, if you are staying a while, they will specifically purchase the mixers and alcohols that you like. Summary: If you want luxury accommodations, dancing to live music and a buffet, go elsewhere. If you want a somewhat off-the-grid experience with fresh local food, really good diving, and a quiet beach - this is your spot. It is pretty astonishing that a place with electrical power, Internet, a dive compressor and a bar even exists in this location. Bring a book.

Bringing solar power to the resort - the best business trip I could imagine I came to the End of the World Resort because the owner Brian Rowland participated in a German-Honduran pilot project for innovative solar solutions with lithium storage. As the local manager of the project I spoke with him frequently, always being amazed by his positive energy and drive. When I finally got to see End of the World in person, I understood that only a person with this kind of energy could run a place that is so well taken care of in such a remote and challenging location. The resort is absolutely stunning, so is the nature that surrounds it. It also definitely was a highlight of our project inauguration tour and very worth the extra days we spent there. I'm happy to have participated in the process of bringing clean energy to End of the World and hope to be back very soon.

Excellent Trip! My 15-year-old son and I wanted to find an off the grid place to scuba dive. We searched throughout the Caribbean, and lucked out to stumble upon the End of the World Resort. It was truly the experience of a lifetime! Owner, Captain Brian, and his son are warm and wonderful hosts. The diving was spectacular, and Captain Brian took care of every aspect of of trip, including the safe and memorable dives. We'd originally planned to only stay for four days, as we'd booked a place in Roatan for the remainder of the trip, but we immediately decided to stay the whole week at End of the World, within a few hours of arriving. We'd highly this place, and we'll definitely be back!
